Through a press release, CCSS medical director, María Eugenia Villalta, ruled out it was a case of Ebola.

Villalta explained that the case was reviewed by professionals of the CCSS and found no epidemiological link to suggest that the patient has the disease.

Nevertheless, calls to the 911 emergency line keep pouring in, according to Telenoticias on its early morning television news broadcast.

Health officials are asking people not to panic, because the country is prepared in the event the virus enters Costa Rica.
